This review is from: SanDisk Black 1GB MP3 Player Sansa c240
Pros: Had this for more than two years now, and still works. The sound quality is great (not perfect though), and has many features such as radio and voice/radio recording. If you just want something to listen to music with, this is a good choice.
Cons: After a little more than a year, the output for the left audio started bugging out. There would be no sound coming out of the left headphones. This gets fixed either by moving the jack around or just waiting. I know it is from the mp3 player because I've tried multiple headphones and speakers. The problem isn't persistent and doesn't happen enough to be a major annoyance. It's probably a flaw specific to a few of these mp3 players, so it shouldn't be something to worry about.
Also, be aware that micro SDHC doesn't work with this. I tried stuffing a 4 gig micro sdhc chip and it wouldn't read. Not unexpected, considering it may not even have been made when this first came out. I had to keep with the 2 gig I had.
Other Thoughts: With the newer Sansa's that are out these days, this one may be a bit over priced compared to its storage capacity. Still it does its job.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative EP-630 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Canal Noise Isolation Earphones
Pros: Been using these thing, and they're awesome. The clarity and sharpness is very high. It's quite comfortable. I can wear these for extended periods of time without discomfort. Just make sure you stuff them into your ears well so they don't fall out. I'm not too partial about bass, but these do give the bass an extra kick. What seems to set these apart from other I've used is the depth. It's got some pretty good depth variation.
Cons: Not a really a $80 headset. And, if you're not used to ear canal headphones, you may find these to be rather awkward to wear (applies to any headphones of this style, really).
Other Thoughts: Seems like the only people that complain are the connoisseurs of sound with way too expensive headsets. Of course these lack the excessive sound quality and depth of the $80+ headphones! Don't know why expensive headset users would try these anyway. If you're just an average listener, these should be more than you need.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Far Cry 2 PC Game
Pros: Was looking forward to this game for a while, and I'd have top say I wasn't disappointed. Interactivity and "realism" is top notch. The foliage system is extremely realistic (better than crysis if you'd ask me). The graphics come very close to crysis levels (though the foliage always looks better). The game play is fun, and shouldn't be repetitive if you're familiar with the gta series. Can't really say much about the story-line, since I haven't beaten the game yet, though I'm liking what I've seen so far. Exploration is a big factor with the hidden diamonds and audio tapes, but you risk getting shot up (quite often).
Cons: One of the biggest cons to this game is it's instability. There's a chance that you'll run into a perform bug (such as the game constantly crashing every half hour, which is the only thing preventing me from playing a couple hours straight). However, there should be a bigger chance that the game will run fine. You can either take the chance in buying this game now, or wait for some more patches to come out.
Game play wise, I have experienced some minor bugs with AI, though they weren't big enough to bother me any. Other people have experienced worse problems regarding the dynamic narrative system, save system, and etc, but I haven't experienced any of those.
Some people also complain about the quick enemy respawn times, but I don't find them a problem. I think this is a little exaggerated, since I've gone through a checkpoint twince (before and after completing a mission), and the enemies did not respawn the second time I passed through.
Other Thoughts: Generally a great game. Sort of like a GTA FPS in Africa. Should be enjoyable for those that don't demand bug-free and flawless games. The only reason I do not endorse the PC version of this game fully is because of the performance and stability issues. If there weren't any of these such issues, I'd be shouting far cry 2 everywhere I go. if you are not a chance taker, I'd suggest buying the console version (if you have a console), as those apparently have considerably fewer performance bugs.READ FULL REVIEW
